Dorm Thief Pleads Guilty To Petty Larceny Charge A Lincoln woman iis await ing sentencing for stealing in the Women's Residence Halls. Mrs. George Boghossian, 20, of 1845 E, pleaded guilty to a petty larceny charge Thursday in Lancaster Coun ty Court. Her sentence was deferred, pending further investigation by Robert Metcalfe, probation officer. Mrs. Boghossian, who is not a University student, ad mitted stealing a television set from a housemother, Mrs. Robert M o o d i e, and cash from a number of purses and billfolds. According to University po lice Captain Eugene Masters, more than $100 has been re ported missing by dormitory residents, but Mrs. Bohassian claims she took only about $50. No Record The Lincoln woman, whose husband Is an employee at the State Hospital, had no previous record of theft, Mas ters said. Captain Masters said all dormitory residents had been alerted to watch for mysteri ous persons in the dormitory. Mrs. Boghossian had been seen, but no one realized she was the thief, he said. On Tuesday she went into a' girl's room, "thinking the girl was not in," she wnt on, "but she was," and Mrs. Boghossian told her "she was sorry, she had the wrong room." Took License Number Then she went to a phone booth, and the coed sum moned Mrs. Moodie. Accord ing tor Masters, the house mother followed Mrs. Boghos sian when she left the dorm and took her license number. Masters traced the car and went to the Boghossian home, accompanied by a policewom an; Mrs. Hulda Roper. He said he found the tele vision sitting in the front room. On the way to the police station, Mrs. Boghossian ad mitted she had done the steal ing, Masters said. Threw Purses Away She, admitted that she us ually took purses and billfolds and left them in the rest Council Asks On Extended Library hours was the sub ject of much discussion in the regular Wednesday meet ing of the Student Council. J. B. Fournier, Law School representative, stated that the value of Love Library was well over two million dollars and interest rates on this, at six per cent, amount ed to thousands per year. "With this much going out the window every year, we may as well use the library as much as possible," he said.' Up To Council Dave Godbey, member of Hardin Will Direct College Association Chancellor Clifford M. Har din recently was elected pres ident of the American Asso ciation of Land-Grant Colleges and State Universities. The organization ' is com posed of 68 major institutions in 50 states and Puerto Rico. More than 1300 college presi dents and administrators were present in St. Louis ior the meeting w h e r e the an nouncement was made. A University First This is the first time that a University representative has been elected to such a high and important national post. Dr. Hardin, 44, is also be lieved to be the youngest pres ident the association has had. "I was liighly pleased to be selected for this post," said the Chancellor. "I have long been an enthusiastic sup porter of the programs and philosophy of the Land Grant Institutions," he continued. The position will be for one year and the custom is that after serving as preSufcht, the following year he will serve rooms or threw them on the streets. Captain Masters cautioned all campus residents to be on the lookout for people who might enter houses. He ad vised, "Put purses and bill folds out of sight." "Practically all purses that were stolen were in plain sight," he added. "It's simple for a prowler to step in arid take a purse off a desk, but usually they will not search drawers," he warned. Dooley's Medico Will Share AUF Funds Dr. Thomas A. Dooley's project, MEDICO, will re ceive up to one thousand dollars from the All Uni versity Fund. This was the result of student comment. The AUF Board felt that this was something worthwhile, per haps even more so than other AUF projects. The Board voted Thursday night to give all the money over the goal of $5,500 up to one thousand dollars to Dooley's project. The" AUF Board decided that the goal must be met before MEDICO would re ceive any of the funds so licited through the efforts of the All University Fund. State Pen Tour Is on Schedule For Ag Students Fifty Ag College students will tour Nebraska State Pen- itentiary Tuesday evening. The tour will leave from the Ag College Student Union 'at 5:30 according to Sara Rhodes, chairman of the Ag Union Hospitality Committee, sponsors of the event.

The eiuup will be enter tained by prison inmates and will eat supper at the institu- tion the Library Committee last year, told the Council it must decide the hours desired and the 'days that they wanted the library tObe open and then gather student support to back the Council. He also stated that longer hours had been sought in the past, but that the situation now is sim ilar to that of the past two years. ; Jack Nielsen, Council Pres ident, said that the opinion of the Council members is more than just any 33 stu dents and that the Student Council recommendations f CHANCELLOR HARDIN as chairman qf the executive committee. The executive board is composed of 12 other members from colleges and universities. He succeeds D. C. Clement French, president of Washing ton State University, who has held the post for the past year.

Student Library carry weight, although only when these recommendations are made on and supported by a strong foundation. .' "We must start with a well defined course of action," he said. "First, we must get a good sample of student opin ion and then make a vigor ous, all-out effort to attain the students' wishes. Student Council members must really push an effort like1 this and gather as much information as possible which we may then build a foundation up on." Research Books It was stated that Frank Lundy, Director of University Libraries, wanted to purchase more books for research pur poses. He is also not con vinced that students want ex tended and increased library hours nor is he convinced that students would use these if they were adopted. It was further stated that the staff of the Love Memo rial Library thinks the library should be used more for re search purposes than for sim ply a place in which to study. Henry Baumgarten, Coun cil Faculty Adviser, told the Report on Calendar Causes Questioning A Calendar Committee re port was also the subject of Student Council comment at the Wednesday meeting. Some of the Council members were curious about the ab sence of Council opinion on the beginning of the 1960-61 school term at the recent Faculty Senate meeting. Dennis . .Nelson, Chairman of the Council Calendar Com mittee, told the Council that all the evidence that was sub mitted to him was three let ers and the straw vote of the Council's preference. "The Faculty Calendar Committee took a survey of faculty date preferences and based their decision on this since the Student Council rep resentative was not present at that meeting," he said. "Evidence submited just did not have enough weight for us to try to present our point, and the presentation of our argument would have had to be presented to the Faculty Senate since the Faculty Cal endar Committee had already made its decision. Jack Nielsen told the Coun cil that three letters showed some support, but not enough. He also explained that the reason a Council member was not present at the Faculty Commencement, Meters Discussed by Council In addition to school cal enders and library hours, parking meters and 'schedule conflicts were discussed by Council members. Elimina tion of the speaker at the Commencement exercises al so evoked opinions of various activities represented at the Council. The Parking Board stated that they had submitted a recommendation to James Pittenger, assistant to t h e chancellor, that the twelve minute meters be changed to either two or four hour meters since very few students used the twelve minute meters. The Parking Board made this recommendation since the Student Union parking lot is still on an experimental basis. Ken Tempero, social com mittee chairman, stated that the Faculty Sub-Committee on Social Affairs is planning to make two recommendations to the Faculty Committee on Student Affairs. One of the recommenda tions will be: on closed dates, such as Ivy Day, Homecom ing "and the Chancellor's Re ception, nothing else should be scheduled. The other is: there j should be no duplica tions un scheduling dates of events which involve a large segment of the student body andor paid public perform ance and that events sched uled first should be given priority. It was also reported that Views Hours Council that the recent boost in the library's budget was used up on the increasing costs of the library and not on new books. He said that there are numerous demands from every channel that books and journals be ob tained and the administrators of the library have to be thoroughly convinced of a plan before they will approve it due to the shortage of funds. He also told the Council that it would be a matter of "taking money from one pocket and moving it to an other" if the library were to extend and increase hours. Chuck Wilson mentioned the earlier vote of the Council that was submitted to tho Library Committee and also told the Council of a poll taken last year which had in cluded over 700 University students which was submitted to the library as a sample of student desires. He said the Council must get views of the student body and then express them in a motion by the Student Coun cil. Then, he said, we should get a "yes" or "no" answer Calendar Committee meeting was due to a mix-nn in the mail system. The Council was notified of the meeting in time, but the notification did not reach the Council's hands until one day after the meeting since the letter had gotten lost in the rearrangement of the activity mail boxes in. the Union... He. explained that it was not the fault of any person or organi zation, as had perhaps been understood by some. J. B. Fournier said the Stu dent Council should show stu- .i t : MMj or 1 .n( ! n (straw vote of Council on calendar question) should in dicate the student opinion for the campus. Jack Nielsen told the Coun cil that "members acted as individuals in presenting opin ion and not as reDresenta- tives. Bob Krohn informed the Council that a "straw v vote shows only individual opinion and is not representa tive." It was stated that the Stu dent Council weight and the letters were found to be in sufficient and though a pre sentation of this evidence to the Faculty Senate would hurt the Council more than help it. ' the faculty is interested in finding a more effective and fair method of punishing stu dents for offenses. The pre sent method consists of either dismissal, conduct probation or conduct warning. In connection with the opin ion upon whether a speake should be engaged for Com mencement, Jack Nielsen re ceived various Council mem ber's individual findings on the subject. Builders Board was in favor of having a speaker, 12-4. The four dis senting votes being cast be cause of the heat problem in the Coliseum. A. W. S. was unanimously in favor of a speaker, although they thought a time limit should be imposed and a local speaker be considered. TWA and Tassels wera in favor of eliminating a speaker unless the speech were a short one delivered by a member of the University. They believe tradition should be followed and retain the Coliseum as the site of Com mencement instead of moving it to Pershing Auditorium or Memorial Stadium where it would be cooler. Some thought that a speaker for Commencement was very' necessary and that the other program should be c0H.en.5edi to avoid the .amount of time consumed. They also thought the selection of the speaker was of prime importance in the question of eliminating speakers at Commencement.
